Composer is new chief of national opera

Zigmars Liepins, has been appointed artistic director and board chairman of Latvian National Opera. Never a good idea to put both jobs in one pair of hands.


The last opera chief was fired summarily in September. Latvia’s foremost operatic asset is the mezzo Elina Garanca. She is married to the (British) conductor of the national symphony orchestra. Small country.
